Corporate immigration services


It can be stressful and difficult to understand Australia’s ever changing complex immigration rules and policies. Robert Walters Immigration Services Team can provide your business with a comprehensive immigration service tailored to your needs.




Robert Walters provides the following immigration services to corporate organisations:

  • Employer organisations seeking to obtain Australian Standard Business Sponsor status 
  • Employer organisation seeking to sponsor foreign employees in Australia
  • Employer organisation seeking assistance to sponsor foreign workers as on-hire contractors
  • Employer organisations seeking assistance for compliance with Australian Migration Regulations
  • Foreign executives travelling to Australia on business trips

On-hire Labour Agreement – Subclass 457 visa

Robert Walters has been granted an On-hire Labour Agreement by the Australian Department of Immigration and Boarder Protection (DIBP) that permits us to sponsor overseas skilled workers on the Subclass 457 visa and on-hire them to Australian businesses.

This alleviates the need for an organisation to apply for and obtain Standard Business Sponsor status. As a result, this means we can search the broadest global pool of skilled professionals to fill any skill shortages in Australia.

Robert Walters is able to place workers with skills in professions including but not limited to the following:

  • Accounting
  • Engineering
  • Financial services
  • Human Resources
  • Information Technology
  • Management Consulting
  • Marketing
  • Program Administration

Under this arrangement, Robert Walters engages the overseas skilled worker and is responsible for payroll, monitoring and compliance requirements. The worker will be an on-hire temporary worker of Robert Walters but still reports to the Australian organisation.

Standard Business Sponsorship program

Commonly known as the Standard Business Sponsorship program, it is implemented by the DIBP to enable organisations to directly sponsor expatriate employees to work in Australia.

For the approval of a Standard Business Sponsorship under the current legislation, the DIBP requests evidence that the Australian business is lawfully and actively operating in Australia and meets prescribed benchmarks for the training of Australian citizens and permanent residents.

The Standard Business Sponsorship application, on approval, is valid for a period of five years.

Our services include assisting organisations with the application process and making recommendations to organisations to improve existing processes ensuring that any obligations to the DIBP are met. Furthermore, we ensure that any changes to Australian immigration policy that may impact the client organisation are communicated in a timely manner to ensure compliance with the latest migration policies.

Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) – Subclass 186 visa

The Employer Nomination Scheme (ENS) enables skilled overseas workers to secure Australia permanent residency through a nomination process with the prospective or existing employer organisation in Australia.

There are two distinct stages to this process:

  • The employer in Australia nominates a skilled role to be filled by the work in Australia
  • The employee lodges a visa application to demonstrate they meet key skills, English language, health and character requirements

Our professional and experienced Registered Migration Agents are qualified to advise on the option that best suits the specific set of circumstances that apply to both the employer and the employee.
